nothing but...


(> The Colorado Rockies' magic number is 1, with four games left, to win the wild card spot. We're big Rockies fans here in our house and this is an exciting time for the Denver area. Go Rockies!! Let's see how far we can go.

(> We are hosting a [church] small group meeting at our home every Wednesday night for the next 10 weeks. That means my house will remain clean for that long =). We're watching some of the Nooma videos, followed by discussion. The discussion last night was so good, we went an hour over the time we were supposed to quit. Is anyone familiar with Nooma? They're great.

(> October is now here. Don and I each have big birthdays this month. A big number that I haven't been looking forward to.

(> I am looking forward to November. The family, all four of us, will be spending a week in California with family. The main reason for the trip is to attend my grandmother's 90th birthday party.

(> I got my flu shot today. I get one every year (and so does the family). I have never had any adverse effects from the shot and I can't remember the last time I had the flu. I'll just leave it at that. I probably wouldn't get the H1N1 vaccination, but I've been told I really should because of being diabetic. So, I guess I'll be doing that in a couple of weeks.

(> I made the decision not to return to the tutoring/mentoring job that I had last year. The schedule just didn't work out. From how busy I've been the past couple of weeks, it's pretty clear that I'll have things to fill my time. When God closes doors, He opens windows.

(> Is Fall like this in other areas? The weather Tuesday was beautiful, with a high of 87. It was still warm yesterday, somewhere around 80, but windy. Today it's not supposed to get out of the 50s and cloudy. Yuck. I'm hoping that we get a couple more months of that beautiful Fall weather that I love so much... sunny, in the 70s, and blue skies with big white fluffy clouds.

I was just thinking yesterday about your job and I wanted to ask you where you were at with it.

You small group sounds nice - especially the clean house part :)

Our weather seems to be a little crazy too at times.

Happy Thursday!! Happy October!!

And thanks for your sweet comments about my new blog look! :-D I had been wanting to change it for some time, but it wasn't until I got that shot that I knew I had the perfect header!!

we've hosted gatherings in our home as well...and i know that one of the many positive side effects is a guarantee of a clean house:0) sometimes it takes that kind of motivation!

embrace your "big" number! you are as young as you feel and age just like weight, is JUST A NUMBER!

enjoy your october!

I schedule get-togethers here just so the house gets cleaned!

BTW, the sun is coming out here (Centennial), so maybe it won't be as bad as the weatherman said today.

they're sooo much fun! and the beginning of another adventure!!

So exciting about the Rockies, isn't it? We're big fans as well. DH and I are going to the game this afternoon, where we will probably freeze.

I need to throw a party or something. My house is a mess. Or move. I'd rather have a party.

I, too, was wondering about your job. God definitely opens windows. I'm not familiar with Nooma, but will check it out.

"Speaking" of birthdays, how about you and I doing something fun to celebrate our "big birthdays??!"

Will all 4 of you be here for the 22nd?

Go Rockies!! I love the Rockies. Fall has been crazy here too...which is why I am NOT looking forward to November. It usually just means a lot of snow here, or really cold weather. I hope you enjoy your trip to California!!
